But not every family is ready to give 500-1000 rubles for children's sliders. And why, if the baby grows out of them in 2-3 months? And I would very much like that the clothes of the crumb were not only of high quality, but also unusual, not like the clothes of hundreds of other similar children.

Also, if you are planning to start knitting a jumpsuit for toddlers, you will need some tips.

If we are talking about a winter overalls, then a thread of merino or cashmere is suitable, and if you are preparing to knit a spring jumpsuit, then you need to choose a yarn thinner. Pay attention to its "fluffiness": too long a pile can fall into the child's eyes and mouth. In addition, the yarn should in no case be pricked.
2. Color. Here, of course, everything depends on the personal taste of parents. Some opt for discreet pastel tones, some are unmarked and dark, while others prefer to see their baby wearing bright green or sunny-yellow clothing.
3. Picture. If you have the first experience and you want to master knitting of a jumpsuit for a newborn, it is better to start with the simplest figure - a dressing or hosiery binding. And even if you already perfectly knit with knitting needles, try not to get involved in complex patterns and especially seams and elastic bands.

5. The model. Since it is a jumpsuit for a very tiny child, you need to knit it so that it's comfortable to wear and remove. Between the legs and on the shoulders should be fasteners, or alternatively a lightning bolt. You can also tie the overalls on straps, with which you can adjust the growth, thus increasing its service life.
